Big, roomy inside, comfortable
vehicle. Good stock stereo and fine
build quality. Good paint. Now the
negative. I hope Ford changes those
automatic trannys. I maintained mine
but still went out at 130K miles. Jeep
Cherokee/Wrangler, Isuzu Trooper and
Toyota use the same AT which is much
more reliable. Explorer has poorly
designed brakes and rotors. It's also
too heavy which causes tires to wear
out to fast. The alignment seemed to
go out often. Until Ford makes some
changes, I expect to stick to Jeep
Cherokee/Wrangler. It's ashame because
I used to be into Fords.
Good size in and out. Great on road
trips becuase it has a good ride.
Quite on the inside. Cheap parts and
not expensive vehicle to buy.
Change the tranny! Change the brakes
and rotors. The engine is very hard to
work on in comparison to Toyotas and
Jeeps. Front lights turn grey after
they get scratched up and are too
expensive to replace as a unit.
